Barzani Charity Foundation
 
The Barzani Charity Foundation is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit organization which was founded in 2005 in Erbil, the capital city of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Mr Masrour Barzani is the head of BCF’s Board of Founders and directly oversees the operation of this foundation. ˧

The BCF has legal permission to work as a charitable non-governmental organization from both the Iraqi Government and the KRG. The increasing activities of the BCF in the area of humanitarian response to IDPs and refugees inside and outside KRI has given great credibility to the BCF in relation to reputable intergovernmental and international organizations and resulted in increased cooperation and coordination between the BCF and other concerned parties. These factors lead to the BCF being granted a Consultative Status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in the organization’s meeting in April 2016. ˧

The BCF aims to provide assistance to local people in need, internally displaced people and refugees. The BCF also aims to improve the education (especially child education) and health fields in the Region and strives to improve the lives and opportunities of the disabled and people with special needs. In addition, orphan care makes one of the BCF’s major working areas so far. ˧
